I like talk in class. We will all talk during class hours: you and I, not all at the same time, however, but as part of conversations. These conversations will mostly be in German if we are learning German on the A1 course, or they will be about literature and philosophy if we are doing a course on European thought. We will read aloud, reflect, write, and discuss.
So come to the Department of European Studies, Manipal University, and meet me. I expect punctuality and intelligent participation in class. This includes classroom discussions, tests, and assignments. I would like you to think with care about the subject we are dealing with and ask me any question that may strike you as important. I will try to answer your questions as best as I can.
